Integrated and experienced specialists
Our ability to offer a combination of regulatory and transaction-related advice has resulted in our participation in the construction of several of Europe's largest wind farms, often from planning to financing and later sales. In the wind power segment, we have market-leading excellence in all areas.

Setterwalls also handles day-to-day regulatory matters within other industries that involve everything from examinations relating to water rights to issues relating to mineral rights and other natural resources. The team’s expertise covers all environmental law issues that frequently arise within the energy and commodities industry. Here is also where our special ability lies to adapt the team of lawyers according to specific needs. This enables us to assist in all types of energy projects from start to finish; from initial government contacts and permit examinations to external financing from foreign or domestic banks and sales to international operators.
The electricity market
For a long time, our industry specialists have worked closely with the energy sector and gained solid experience also of issues related to the electricity market. We frequently assist with advice on electricity supply agreements, electricity safety, electricity distribution, network tariffs, network concession holder’s revenues and trading in electricity certificates, emission rights and other related financial instruments.
Disputes concerning energy and commodities
For operators in the energy and commodities sector and in complicated energy projects, complex legal issues are brought to light which sometimes result in dispute arising.
